I'm already feeling sorry for this character, and he hasn't even been cast yet. Actor Song Sae-byeok may soon land his first leading role in a drama, having been offered the possessed detective in "Possessed". The sweet man with a tough demeanor sounds like he's going to have trouble adjusting to his new, double life.
Song Sae-byeok is positively considering the role of Kang Pil-seong, a detective in the Sangdong Police Station. His nasty appearance, and even nastier tongue make it difficult to believe that he's an officer of the law, until he shows his badge. In other words, he walks a fine line between acting like a cop and a thug. Soooo, like most drama cops then.
Thankfully, however, it gets better. Although he's lazy and rough, he has one of the most important aspects of a good detective, his unbeatable foresight. Contrary to his appearance, he's also deeply contemplative, and has a kind heart. While he's not afraid of criminals of any kind, he's terrified of insects and ghosts.
That's right. Our soon-to-be possessed detective is terrified of ghosts, and he is about to be plunged into a case full of them, as per the premise I shared last week. Can this rough softie handle it? I look forward to finding out, and I hope as hard as I can hope that Song Sae-byeok accepts, and that Go Joon-hee and Yeon Jung-hoon join him. "Possessed" will be airing on OCN in January.
